Using an Electronic Drumkit as Rock Band controller?

Post by timekeeper »

I fell into this http://gimx.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12 ... uitar#p786 and I thought to ask what are the possibilities of using a usb drumkit with Rock Band? My drumkit is custom built and it uses Megadrum http://www.megadrum.info to send midi over usb to my PC. Here it is on youtube:

This requires a MIDI to joystick conversion.

As far as I know, Rock Band cannot be played with a standard dual shock pad. So, are there any special commands that a RB controller sends? Couldn't those be implemented as macros?

No, it's a whole different device.
